  • people much smarter than I were already on it. earlier in 2009, the father of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee, was taking his message of Linked Open Data to the streets. How we can build a web of data... sounds familiar... and it seems to worked out the first time... From a web of documents, to a web of data\n
  • and that web of data is already growing rapidly...\n
  • What if we begin to apply this to the vast amounts of data at libraries, archives, and museums?\n

  • --Our data and databases have been organized in tables\n--which works, but only to a point\n
  • The World Wide Web is much more like a graph, and the ability to link to disparate datasets relies on our ability to understand data as nodes and links in a graph\n

  • 2009 Linked Open Dataphotos by PhOtOnQuAnTiQuE, TED
  • Linking Open Data cloud diagram, by Richard Cyganiak and Anja Jentzsch. http://lod-cloud.net/
  • The LOD cloud as a whole grew by 300% in 2010 http://swib.org/swib11/
  • The LOD cloud as a whole grew by 300% in 2010 whereas the amount of data relevant for libraries grew by nearly 1000% http://swib.org/swib11/
  • Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archive & Museums Culture TechnologyLODLAM Law
  • Join the LODLAM movement• #lodlam• http://lodlam.net proceedings online and on the road for the next year at various annual meetings and conferences• http://groups.google.com/group/lod-lam• Contribute!
  • 3. A 2 minute or less primer: Tables to Graphs & Triples
  • Going from Tables to Graphs http://www.flickr.com/photos/thomasjwoods-com/2264301251
  • Going from Tables to Graphs • nodes and links in a graph
  • Going from Tables to Graphs• As computing power increases, the ability to build more and more complex graphs becomes a reality.• Human vs. Machine readable msulibraries lookbackmaps msulibraries internetarchive msulibraries librarycongress lookbackmaps internetarchive internetarchive librarycongress
  • Introducing Triples Nodes & Linksjonvoss
  • Introducing Triples Nodes & Links followsjonvoss

  • Introducing Triples Nodes & Links follows jonvoss SILibraries csnesbit• Quite simply: Subject, Predicate, Object
  • Introducing Triples Nodes & Links follows jonvoss SILibraries csnesbit• Quite simply: Subject, Predicate, Object• gives us the ability to describe entities in a way that is machine readable
  • Triples for machines• triples can be serialized in many different ways, including Resource Description Framework, RDF/XML, RDFa, N3, Turtle, etc, but they all describe things in the <subject><predicate><object> format.• of course, we need to be consistent and predictable for machines to understand us.
  • What do we know about the person: Ed Summers (aside from the fact that he rocks)?Bio: Hacker for libraries, digital archaeologist, pragmatist. bio knows depiction of knows http://inkdroid.org/ehs.rdf

  • Why Humanists Should Like LOD Visualizing Emancipation Data Flows“Early on Saturday morning last while off Point Lookout three negroes came to theship in a canoe from the Virginia shore. They say they are free, but have no freepapers, and assign as a reason for running away that they were required to fight. Ihave also on board two slaves taken from the Virginia shore by the lateCommander J. Ward; they say they belong to Mrs. Stewart, a widow, residing nearMathias Point. I respectfully request instructions in relation to all these people.” -Capt. S. C. Rowan, aboard the U.S.S. Pawnee, to Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy, July 23, 1861
